The Hu at Golden State Theatre
This event has already passed
The Hu is a band from Mongolia that blends heavy metal rock music with traditional Mongolian throat singing and instrumentation, such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), and Tumur Khuur (jaw harp). Their first two videos (“Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem”) immediately went viral, garnering the band over 100 million views.
The band’s name is the Mongolian root word for human being. They call their style “Hunnu Rock”…inspired by the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire, known as The Huns in western culture. Some of the band’s lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry.
